The billionaire businessman made the announcement on his Twitter account Friday afternoon.  He says it's a race he would have won, but that he has much bigger plans in mind.  Trump did not elaborate and told his followers to  "stay tuned."

He said the State Republican Party is "totally dysfunctional."

Trump's decision not to run sets the stage for a race between Cuomo and Republican Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino.
